Flamenco Express Feat. Victor Fernández

This month's cargo of flamenco talent includes Victor Fernández, and return of vocal virtuoso Pedro Sanz. Plus 'sizzling soloist' La Joaquina, and guitar maestro Chris Clavo.

Victor Fernández
The talents of this incredibly versatile dancer were recognised by major international artists from the start. In his short career he has performed with legends such as Rafaela Carrasco, Javier Latorre, Rafael Aguilar, Juanjo Linares, Eva Yerbabuena, Farruquito, Isabel Bayón, Rafaela Carrasco, Christine Tanguay, Rafaela Carrasco, and Javier Latorre.

He toured China with the Ballet Flamenco de Madrid, and is part of Rafael Aguilar Dance Company, performing in major theaters in Germany, China and Taiwan, Dresden and Shanghai, and is at the forefront of modern flamenco choreography.

Pedro Sanz
Acknowledged heir to the legends of flamenco song, and custodian of its future. A lyrical virtuoso, lifting the audience above pain and care, and the dancer above the stage as if on wings.

'Pedro Sanz offered an intense, evocative solo as the Cantaor' - Vivien Schweitzer, New York Times 2008

La Joaquina
An uncompromising fireball of flamenco, physically exploring and confronting the contortions and complexities of living. Only capable of total commitment and inspiration.

"La Joaquina, tiny, urgent and intense, explored a vast emotional vocabulary, and juxtaposed vulnerability and tenderness with violence and aggression… tempestuous beats ... sinewy arms snake angrily and her taut body is totally driven by her feelings. Wild and untameable...” - Emma Manning, The Stage

Chris Clavo
A bewilderingly versatile musician in constant telepathic harmony with his fellow artists and the audience. "Two amazing guitar solos from Chris Clavo and Jesus Alvarez made string instruments sing with impossible precision." - Staffordshire Post

Reviews:
“This feisty company delivers the finest in flamenco, plus sizzling soloist La Joaquina” - Time Out
